Ecowas Commission launches campaign on the free movement of people and goods along the Togo-Ghana border

(Togo First) - The Ecowas commission, in partnership with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), has started since yesterday an awareness campaign relative to the Ecowas biometric card and the free movement of people and goods at the Togo-Ghana border. 

This is because the free movement of people and goods is still not effective at this border, despite having been approved years ago. Worse even, many cases of abuse of rights of Ecowas citizens in this area have been reported to the commission.  

During the two-day campaign, the people will be informed of their rights and also told why having a biometric ID card is important. “The Ecowas biometric national ID card helps track travelers across the community and thus helps fight insecurity,” said a representative of the commission. It also reduces formalities, hence easing traveling for Ecowas citizens.
